Packers Listed as 8 Point Favorites for Sunday's Jets Game

The Packers have been listed as eight point favorites for Sunday's home opener against the Jets. 

New York's AFC team, notorious for their mediocrity, beat the Raiders in their first contest of the season last week, winning a close one 19-14.

Still, since they did it in overall difficult fashion and this weekend's game is at Lambeau Field it seems reasonable to think the home team will emerge victorious in it, as they never lost in Green Bay last year when Aaron Rodgers played 2+ drives.

Leave your thoughts below on whether you think Vegas made a good guess here.

Jack - hard to believe the pack won't take care of business at Lambeau. Expect them to win handily. No blanket coverage corners on the NY side and a less effective pass rush. Give Rodgers the entire field and time to throw and he should make hay. Unlike Thursday. Obviously.
Keep up the good work and Go Hawks!

I'm surprised they're favored by 8 points. It looks like the line must have increased to 9 by the time I've written this comment. Only the Broncos are more heavily favored this week (Chiefs in Denver). I'm not following the Jets very closely. Maybe Geno Smith is a lot worse than I ever imagined.
